I saw him play at Valero and his swing has a higher finish now and he's not playing very well.

I think he knows, whatever the problem is, and has reached out to a new teacher to try and fix it.

He just had a kid and game kinda took back burner, he's trying to get it back and saw a few gg Instagram posts and called him up instead of fixing the actual problem, putting.

His putting is killing him, since the putter anchor rule cam into affect he has not done anything. Putter has always been his nemesis.  Short game is the tournament winner.

The dude with the best swing on tour who can't putt decides to change his swing based on input from an internet swing guru. So now his swing is messed up and he still can't putt.

Give Louis a tractor and his farm and he's happy... I'm pretty sure these days he plays to finance new farm equipment.

Putting putting putting putting putting putting, very simple the rest of your game crumbles if you can't get the ball in the hole, add to that an average green reader it's not a good combo.

The move back to the short putter has definitely affected Adam Scott. He just doesn't have the confidence or consistency.

Even with an average Adam Scott ball striking game (which is better than most on tour) with just an average putting game, he should still be getting results.

Where do I start? He's made FAT money for years, won around the world, won a major, without being a decent putter by PGA Tour standards. Today, you HAVE to be a decent putter, or you'll get run over!.......

His swing doesn't look all that different, but he is struggling. Golf is a funny game, I mean look at Adam Scott, Yani Tseng, Geoff Ogilvy, to name a few who contended regularly but are now struggling. That is one reason I can't get too upset if I have a bad round. I mean if golfers at the highest level struggle with this game, what does that say for the amateur? :-)

How incredibly frustrating it must be to be striking the ball so well, but can't get it into the cup.
